Energy From Waste Facility, Middlesbrough


Location: Middlesborough

Client: John Sisk and Son

Value: £4.7 million

Duration: 36 weeks


Our first project in this sector, Cidon were awarded the sub-structure and super-structure works for the energy from waste facility, Cleveland. The contract included 24,000m3 of concrete and 2000 tonnes of reinforcement with new client John Sisk.

The site consists of a three stream energy from waste facility, a community recycling centre, green waste composting and an ash processing facility. The energy from waste facility was extended from the original two line plant to a three stream plant, and now has a combined processing capacity of 390,000 tonnes of community waste per year.


  • Integrating the use of precast concrete and temporary works innovation combined with in-house concrete pumping facilities allowed us to maintain the programme, despite value and scope increasing by 30% from tender documentation.
  • Extensive temporary works capability required to develop appropriate schemes.
  • Unique challenges faced, overcome, and lessons learnt as our first energy from waste project.
